  • Answer: Pregnancy in the dog (all breeds) lasts about 2 months: 60-64 days.

  • Dogs bear their litters roughly 9 weeks after fertilization, although the length of gestation can vary from 59 to 65 days, with 63 days being the average.

  • She could have an infection in her uterus. My cat went through this. I was freaked out because it was my brother's cat that he asked me to keep for "a while" and said she was fixed. I was ready to bet the farm she was pregnant and he lied to me. Turns out she has some major infection in her uterus and had to have a full hysterectomy. She nearly died. Get your dog to the vet asap. Generally you should be able to tell if a dog is pregnant because the teats will be swollen.

  • Oh dear God, I hope a 7 year old bitch is not pregnant. No, a dog cannot be pregnant that long without becoming septic and dying. Either she's pregnant and you miscalculated, she is having a false pregnancy which can last that long, or she has pyometria. Either way, all these problems can be fixed by getting her fixed.

  • Btw if it's pyometria or an overdue septic pregnancy she will have nasty discharge that smells.

  • There are other things that can cause a dog's stomach to swell. Honestly you need to get to a vet, it sounds like it could be Cushings Disease, but there are a lot of other things it could be as well. Good luck!
